Chosen Solution

Any 3.5" SATA II (3 Gb/s) drive up to 4TB. You can try a SATA III but be aware that many people come here who have put a "backward compatible" hard drive in their machines with freeze/hang/format problems... so be certain that if your vendor claims a new HD will work they will exchange/refund if it doesn't.
